SDM mk 1


This one is a ship docking module (mark 1), also 1/50. The original and several sister ships operate out of Florida.
It's RC, but quite difficult to handle. Spins in its own length and crab walks but very hard to get it to go in a straight line. The hull had to be deepened to accomodate the drives, motors and electronics.

Just after completion I managed to accidentally destroy the superstructure. It needed a complete rebuild. Alcohol related incident the less said about that the better.

A full build is on: http://modeltugforum.com/index.php?topic=5160.0
